About this Holiday House

From Onslow Retreat you can enjoy the changing moods of the sea from almost every window and of course dine on the huge deck with lovely sea views. So close to town too. This comfortable holiday house with lavish sea views is a perfect retreat enjoying peace and tranquility just outside the city. Wifi of course! Two lovely new bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and new luxurious, thick, spongy carpet in the lounge. Affordable quality accommodation for families coming into Wellington and wanting to be close to the city without the noise. Large opening doors lead out onto the deck where you can enjoy outdoor dining for 6 in summer. On those cold winter days and nights just turn on the Heat Pump in the lounge. Close to transport both north and south, the bus stop is just outside. All three bedrooms have queen beds. Electric blankets are on the beds. Heaters are in every room. Car pad just beneath the house for ease of access. There is a quiet tenant in the flat beneath. We ask for a cleaning fee of $200 for each stay. This isnt added to your quote from Holiday Houses. I add it later when I email you with a quote and more detailed info about the house. It is the only additional cost though.

We stayed in this upper flat for 6 nights. Spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet, well furnished. Everything worked. Large deck with a great view across the harbour to Eastbourne. Just a few steps to the bus stop on the street below, with Bus 24 going to the downtown area. The property manager was always available by email or phone, and brought us a new supply of washing up liquid. Our only disappointment was that the TV didn't have any international news channels (BBC, CNN, Sky, etc). Also, it would have been brilliant to have a BBQ on the deck, although it was too windy to eat outside while we were there.
Thank you Deirdre. We stayed for just over a week in October 2015 and were very happy with the house on the hill. Harbour views were amazing, Parking is a skill, handy to everything - the city, Johnsonville, Porirua, Hutt Valley too. Bus stop across the road. Only downside - it rained most of the time we were there, but even then, it was nice to return to a peaceful haven after a very full day out. Warmest regards Martha and Cyril
We enjoyed our stay at Onslow retreat. The home was very well outfitted and very clean. The kitchen had all of the items that we needed and the bathroom was clean, spacious and great shower. Wifi worked very well. Location was great for exploring Wellington. Although its on a busy street, the home was actually quiet and we were not disturbed by any noise.
